Pistachios

 

We know nuts in general are good for us (unless of course you’re allergic to it), but sometimes we need the visual benefits to make the extra effort to consume these. Pistachios are not only visibly beautiful with its unique ‘pistachio green’ colour, but it turns out these nuts are full of goody stuff.

You see, with healthy food you have to start now to see its benefits as you get older (or should we say as you look younger). Here we gather four of its benefits and we hope it convinces you to start eating it regularly (in moderation)!
